I believe most full time microstockers are way too busy producing product to bother with selfie tutorials...

Or they don't have enough of a technical knowledge to edit to an excellent standard, as seen by Guilherme's final result.

I certainly don't, and stick with publishing blog posts. Seems like these types of YouTube tutorials have the potential to reach a much further audience and have a greater impact.

To what end?

You need to look out for more showreels to see what others are doing.
And again, I see some absolutely gorgeous lifestyle footage portfolios, but the contributors aren't blogging on Youtube.

Again, to what end, to gain an audience of wannabe stock footage creators? Or stock footage buyers? I don't see this as a way of bringing in stock footage buyers.
A good showreel yes, but that's not what I see here.

Lastly, I couldn't help but notice, and no offence to Gui that he has just over 300 clips on Shutterstock, in 5 years? That's not really enough.
I've produced treble that in just over a year, mostly model released lifestyle, but I don't consider myself yet an authority on stock footage.
And even if I was, I wouldn't be telling the world!
